More important, Lara and Terry are looking for apartments to rent. Lara wrote me that they have trouble finding an apartment with Internet access. They will be in Calabria for about a month and they are looking at renting apartments for a week in 4 different destinations and using them as a base to explore and research the surrounding areas. She has found lots of lovely apartments but none has Internet access... Lara prefers not to stay in a hotel as hotels do not suit their work.
Ah, Lara, you are just some months too early. Our palazzo is not ready yet! Our apartment in the seminterrato would have been the perfect and most inspiring place to write the most beautiful guidebook about Calabria ... well, I hope you come back for a 2ND edition in a couple of years !
Meanwhile I will ask around in Pizzo, as this would be a charming and peaceful base to explore the region.
